Trump said that Kelly would be leaving "toward" the end of the year as well as "at" the end of the year, a subtle distinction.
Staff shake-ups and legal jeopardy, two enduring characteristics of Donald Trump's White House, have come to the fore yet again during a turbulent weekend for the president.
"He's been with me nearly two years now, between two positions".
According to Axios, Kelly will be replaced by Nick Ayers, who now works as chief of staff for Vice President Mike Pence.
One of the first things Kelly did was clean house, getting rid several staff members, including White House top advisor Steve Bannon and director of African-American outreach, Omarosa Manigault Newman.
Chris Whipple, who wrote a book on White House chiefs of staff called "The Gatekeepers", said he is sceptical that Ayers has enough clout to be effective as Trump's chief of staff.

He also faces his next campaign for the 2020 presidential elections.
Kelly had been credited with imposing order on a chaotic West Wing after his arrival in June 2017 from his post as homeland security secretary. There had been speculation for months - which had grown more intense in recent days - that the former Marine general would soon exit amid a further chill between him and the president, a deterioration in a relationship that had never been described as overly warm.
Yet Kelly, 68, has no experience in electoral politics.
Also, if the president is looking for insulting epithets, may I suggest "Smelly Kelly"? Kelly became an effective executor of Trump's most racist and despicable policies, namely the family separation policy at the border.
But perhaps most damaging was his handling of the situation involving former staff secretary Rob Porter, who was accused by two of his ex-wives of abuse.
